Technical Summary
 
 While RFC 2865 defines the Filter-Id attribute, this requires that      
    
 the Network Access Server (NAS) be pre-populated with the desired       
    
 filters.  However, in situations where the server operator does not     
    
 know which filters have been pre-populated, it useful to specify        
    
 filter rules explicitly.  This document defines the NAS-Filter-Rule     
    
 attribute within the Remote Authentication Dial In User Service         
    
 (RADIUS).  This attribute is based on the Diameter NAS-Filter-Rule      
    
 Attribute Value Pair (AVP) described in RFC 4005, and the               
    
 IPFilterRule syntax defined in RFC 3588.
